Such great examples been shown here, all sorts! I admire the Osage Orange a lot, GEC could offer more of that. Nice mod there Keith and fine little GEC that last catch of yours.
Thanks to everybody for showing off their latest spoils, provides inspiration for future buying. I've got an acrylic GEC in he pipeline that I'm well excited about, but the small Böker stockman is a real find, strongly recommend one.
Regards to all, Will
It's been a tough month. No tragedies, thank goodness. Just taxes, star-crossed home repairs, insurance paperwork snafus, deadlines, etc. All the things that make being a grownup no fun. So I told myself that if I got the plumbing done, and filed my taxes (and don't owe any more) before the end of the month I could buy myself a reward. This weekend was a local gun show, and a GEC dealer was there. I rarely get a chance to see and handle these in person. Too many choices. Narrowed it down to a Eureka Jack in buffalo horn:
And a spearpoint electrician's in nifebrite:
So...........I bought them both!
A lovely German Eye wood Soddie Jr! A wonderful gift from Humppa!
YAY! Got my very first "Charlow" this week!
Well ... as a matter of fact my first Barlow as well. And i got it from "The Master" himself
Not exactly the Ebony one I was, and still am, looking for ... but this is a proof that "Ebony and Ivory" (or Bone in this case) make a good pair
Very fine Charlow in Ivory bone, could fancy it myself!
Hey willgoy! I have had one of those yellow bokers for awhile& and while I don't carry it a ton.....I really like it. I'll post a pick of a Charlow I picked up last week tomorrow....if I can figure out the Flickr changes.
These have all arrived in the last month or so. I have been really into the Schrade 33ot/233/833 pattern lately. Favorite is the one rehandled by Mr. Williams.
WTB: GEC 33 Conductor w/ coping secondary and a bail. Any handle material (stag or ebony preferred)

Not because of any real need, but simply because you like knives. I received this Queen City (Cozy Glen) mini-trapper yesterday. It's used, sort of. It looks like the previous owner sharpened the clip blade some, though there is little evidence of actual usage. The blades are unscratched, but there are a few pepper spots. That's okay, the lack of minty fresh goodness makes it that much easier to drop into a pocket.
Got this one the other day.
Beautiful knife Cooper!
Yes, GEC acrylic can be a real eye-opener.
Double post whoops.
